Here are a few hints:

  • start by creating the code that prints out every item in the list
  • add a conditional ("if") statement to control when the "print" is done
  • have the conditional test the first letter to see if it is "A"
  • you can isolate a specific letter in a string using indexing (a number in brackets)
